SB 1070: An Arizona Illustrated Special Report

U.S. Supreme Court rules on SB 1070; Arizona and the nation react

The U.S. Supreme Court handed down its decision on Arizona's controversial immigration law, known as SB 1070, Monday morning, striking down all but one of the bill's contested provisions.

What does that mean for Arizona? AZPM explores the issue in an Arizona Illustrated Special Report. This half-hour discussion includes the reactions of Gov. Jan Brewer and U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva.

Field interviews with Tucson Police Department Chief Roberto Villaseñor and Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever focus on what SB 1070's implementation will look like on the ground, while Arizona State University law professor Carissa Hessick provides legal analysis.

The program also includes footage from a Tucson rally in response to the decision and additional interviews with Jose Borrajero, communications director of the Arizona Latino Republican Association, and with Dan Pochoda, legal director of the ACLU of Arizona.
